Lennie gets his street

Tuesday, September 18th, 2007 | You Call This News?

From today’s New York Times:

“A section of 53rd Street in Midtown was named for the actor Jerry Orbach yesterday, six months after his widow started a campaign for the honor. The Transportation Department unveiled the street sign at the intersection of 53rd Street and Eighth Avenue, where Mr. Orbach lived in an apartment for more than 20 years. Mr. Orbach, best known for playing Detective Lennie Briscoe on television’s ‘Law & Order,’ died in December 2004 at age 69.”

Yay! I was hoping that would go through.

Guess we know where future generations of Fantastiks cast members can go to get their photos taken. :)

Until recently, I didn’t know that he was such a ‘hoofer’ on Broadway during his career.

When you were a young and callow fellow…”
